To install the alternator on a 1996 Nissan Maxima you will have to remove the drive belt first and then the A/C compressor. Do not remove the refrigerant lines because the compressor will only have move down about a few inches for you to get enough room to remove the alternator. The alternator will need to be taken out from the bottom.
In the dash, passenger side, behind the glove box.
Remove belt. There are three nuts on the belt side of the compressor left right and one on the bottom. Remove cover on bottom of car, it is plastic and secured with small lag screws. This allows access to the compressor and the rear compressor bolt. One bolt holds both A/C lines to the compressor. Be careful this is under pressure. The a/c system should be evacuated by a professional prior to removal of the compressor.
You will need to remove the ac compressor, alternator, and the bracket underneath them to access the bypass hose.You will need to remove the ac compressor, alternator, and the bracket underneath them to access the bypass hose.
remove both hoses and replace the o rings
Air compressor is mounted to front frame rail, under left hand wheel housing. Remove front left inner wheel well liner and you will find the compressor and activation relay mounted to the frame rail.
Best if you own a compressor, air tools keeps the clutch from turning. If no compressor, mount it in a vise to keep it from turning and remove each bolt, can be tricky as they are mounted together but turn seperately when activated.
you have the mechanic do it for you
Note:The accumulator/drier should be replaced whenever the compressor is replaced Caution:On models with a Delco Loc 2 or Theftlock audio system be sure the lockout feature is turned off before proceeding * Have the AC system discharged.Disconnect the neagtive battery cable * Clean the compressor thourghly around the refrigerant line fittings * Remove the serpentine belt * Raise and support it securely vehicle on jackstands * Disconnect the electrical connector from the AC compressor * Disconnect the suction and discharge lines from the compressor.Both lines are mounted to the back of the compressor with a plate secured by one bolt.Plug the open fittings and discard the seals between the plate and compressor * Unbolt and remove the rear compressor mount.It may be necessary to remove the right side engine mount bolt and raise the engine to access the rear compressor mount bolts * Remove the compressor to front bracket bolts and nuts and remove the compressor from the engine compartment
If the belt's good, check the compressor clutch.
no it has a safeguard to prevent overheating the compressor
It is on the top of the ac compressor.It is on the top of the ac compressor.
Have the system discharged by a licensed AC tech. Remove the belt. Remove the bolt from the Suction/Discharge hose on the back of the compressor. Remove the two pressure switch cables from the back of the compressor and the one from the front driver side. Remove the 4 bolts holding the compressor to the engine, 2 in the front and 2 in the back. Be sure to replace the orifice tube and accumulator when opening the AC system as most compressors will not be warrantied unless this is done. The orifice tube is in the high pressure line going into the evaporator, the accumulator is below the compressor, attached to the wheel well or frame. Installation is the reverse of removal.
The low pressure port on a 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass is between the compressor and the firewall. It is on the larger hose attached to the compressor.
Jack the right front wheel off the ground and remove it. Disconnect the battery Remove both splash panels...one on the side of the fender well and one under the engine on the passenger side. Remove the electrical harness connector Recycle the freon. Disconnect the freon lines. Take the serpentine belt off. Unbolt the compressor from the engine. If you are putting on a new compressor you should replace the accumulator / dryer at the same time. Also, you should pump the system down to remove any moisture in the system.
Yes. and you have to remove the belt that runs alternator-power steering etc before you can remove the air conditioning belt.
* Disconnect the negative battery cable * Raise the car and support it securely on jackstands.Remove the lower splash shield beneath the alternator and the right side inner fender splash shield * Remove the drivebelt * Disconnect the electrical connector and the alternator output wire from the alternator * Remove the engine cooling fan and shroud * Remove the air conditioning compressor mounting bolts (without disconnecting the refrigerant lines) and slide the compressor forward * Remove the alternator mounting bolts and remove the alternator from the engine
It located on the passenger side of the engine just behind the AC compressor. The service manual says you have to discharge and remove the AC compressor, however, i was able to loosen it and it gave me enough room to replace it.
take it to a mechanic
how do you replace a/c compressor for 1996 honda civic 1.6L
low freon, bad pressure switch, bad compressor clutch.
On a 1996 Ford Explorer : The air conditioner compressor is on the drivers side of the engine , it's at the front of the engine and isone of the accessories that is driven by the serpentine belt
No it can't. The compressor breaks internally and that is why it locks up
DO NOT REMOVE THE AC COMPRESSOR. Do not ignore global warming and the federal laws you would be breaking. First take it to a qualified shop and have the freon captured for recycling. This will eliminate a real pollution problem as well as make the system easier to work on. If your freon has already leaked out, you have more problems than just a dead compressor. Now, loosen the serpentine belt. Disconnect the AC hoses. Remove the bolts holding the AC Compressor in place. Replace the AC Compressor. Remember to replace the receiver/drier unit every time you open the AC system. Have a qualified shop connect the receiver drier unit, replace the refrigerant in the system and test for leaks.
